The SHS Christmas Fair

The SHS Christmas Fair

<< LONG POST AHEAD>> Yesterday was an amazing ! Carol (you know her by now – carolkhorram.wordpress.com) and I went to our old school (she was in year 6 there, I was in year 8 there) from 5 months ago to go to the Christmas Fair. Welll… Technically we didn’t actually attend the fair, and just sneaked around the school trying to find anything new…. BUUUUT it was fun either way (:  Continue reading “The SHS Christmas Fair”

Rounding Up November

Rounding Up November

I haven’t done this before, but I really wanted to write down some of the things I did this month, because I’ve actually done QUITE a few things in November that I would just find sad not to note down. Anyway, this is sort of like my ”Half Term” post that I did – where I said that this type of post is more for me to look back on, than anyone else. BUT that one got a whole lot of good responses, so I imagine they’re quite nice to read. So – enjoy reading this for the next hour pt. 2 Continue reading “Rounding Up November”

Some At-Home Things To Do For Halloween

Some At-Home Things To Do For Halloween

It is Halloween in a couple of days, and I have been trying to plan and organise all sorts of Halloween-themed things with my friends. Now – I am 14yrs old and live in the middle of London. The only real ‘Halloween things’ in London happen late in the night and guess what. SCHOOOOL YAAAYY. So – I had to find some at-home things to do. And I thought that I would write it down and share so that other people that are younger or need some last minute ideas can benefit from this too.

I haven’t actually celebrated Halloween for that long, maybe 2 or 3 years, but I’m gradually trying to put more effort into it because there are really some fun things about the Holiday ! For example, its my cat’s birthday on Halloween (: She has black fur as well its pretty cool (:

The positive thing is that I’ve already planned a Halloween sleepover and am currently waiting for the California Roll to tell me if she has any free time to meet up. So I’m not – not doing anything for Halloween (: Continue reading “Some At-Home Things To Do For Halloween”

Updated Instagram Favourites

I did this same post a few months ago, (In February or March I think) and the way I explained my reasons was actually so vague. Don’t get me wrong, these won’t ‘way’ better, I’ll just try and uhm; describe more things. Yeah… So, today I’ll try and pick out around 5-10 accounts from the 193 I follow… Umm I’ll try at least ? I’m pretty sure I’m going to pick out a lot of accounts that are related to portrait photography – because that is something I really love to do myself.

One thing that I’ll keep the same as my previous version of this is that I won’t go as far as to do any type of ranking, I’ll just randomly write down ones I like (: Okay, I think that was enough explaining.  Continue reading “Updated Instagram Favourites”

A Guide Into Enjoying School

-> I wrote this kinda late in the evening, prepare to get absolutely lectured (:

Since moving into a new school, one thing that I’ve just kept on hearing and noticing is how much everyone doesn’t want to be there. That’s literally it. How “urgh, it sucks”, and how everyone “hates it so much”. That is literally the opposite of me and my closest friends. I just don’t understand how people don’t like being in an environment where you can

  • Learn new things by the hour
  • See all of your friends and meet new people
  • Join in in activities that you can’t out of school
  • Do exercise and not hate it – mostly (:
  • Have holidays to look forward to

And etc ! And well, I know that you can’t be like HEY YOU FROM TOMORROW YOU’RE GONNA LOVE SCHOOL ALRIGHT ? Therefore I’ve set up a list of things that I do, and that would help other people enjoy school more as well. Because hey, if you’re in my situation, you’re going to have to attend this thing called ‘school’ for at least 5 more years. So you better start using your time sooner or later. You can also see this as a type of survival guide if you’re desperate (:  Continue reading “A Guide Into Enjoying School”
